The Goddess Movement: My Butt Is Big …
By Aryn Savard. I recently came across a Nike ad that I fell in love with. It featured a fit, but softer woman with a fabulous round, bubble, sticking out there bum in little tiny gym shorts. [Click On Image For Full Story]
The caption read: “My butt is big and round like the letter ‘c’. And ten thousand lunges has made it rounder but not smaller and that’s just fine. It’s a space heater for my side of the bed; it’s my ambassador to those who walk behind me. It’s a border collie that herds skinny women away from the best deals at the clothing sales. My butt is big and that’s just fine. And those who might scorn it are invited to kiss it.”Being an athletic, bubble bottomed girl myself I identified with this instantly. All the days I wished I could fit into those jeans in the stores without feeling like I would blow the crotch seam out pulling them over my thighs or have to wear a belt just to keep the jeans just above my crack because there was never enough ‘seat’ in the jeans. I promptly posted the pic and my thoughts and got many back in return celebrating the bodacious bubble booty.
One comment however caught me off guard. It came from a friend of mine who is genetically very tall and thin. She said (in a jovial typing tone) that she was offended by the final line of the ad. Nothing to stop the presses about, but that she was just as insecure being a tall thin woman who has tried so hard to build her bum and just couldn’t. She so desired a bum and while celebrating the beauty in our round rear-ends, she was feeling left out.
This made me realize once again that we all have hang ups, no matter how awful we think “x” part of our body is, there is always another beautiful woman who wished she had “x” part of us. What I took from the ad and the exchange?
We DO need to celebrate the parts of us we have learned to love, but instead of telling others who may scoff or judge to “kiss off” let’s instead compliment on something we find beautiful about her.
Life is rough enough, let’s celebrate together. My challenge to you? For all the ladies out there, find a woman who you might feel a bit insecure around (perfect strangers are great!), go up to her and plant a sincere comment squarely in her ears and smile. Live in the lavish glow of making the world a little bit better place!
